Canadian researchers become the first to evaluate Ti-5553 alloy for 3D printed bone implants

Researchers from Ontario-based Mohawk College and McMaster University have become the first to investigate the suitability of a titanium alloy, Ti-5553, for 3D printed bone implants. As it stands, most 3D printed implants are created using Ti64 powder, but the research team wanted to see if the unconventional alloy’s topography, coupled with complete design freedom, […]
